The Reverend Lorena M. Parrish, Ph.D. Supporting Women of Color in Ministry on October 17th in New York City – Register by 10/13

Lorena ParrishThe Reverend Lorena M. Parrish, Ph.D. a Worldwide Branding member and Adjunct Professor at the Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York, will be on hand to support the Women of Color in Ministry (WOCIM) project, which seeks to end one of the final frontiers of American prejudice—gender discrimination in the Christian Church and in its attendant seminaries, divinity schools, and service organizations, especially as it relates to women of color.

The annual event will be taking place on Friday, October 17th, and Saturday, October 18th, 2014, in New York City at Convent Avenue Baptist Church. The event details are as follows:


Convent Avenue Baptist Church
420 W. 145th Street
New York, NY 10031

Cost for both days – $25.00
The only way to register for tickets is online!
Reserve your spot at http://womenofcolorinministry.org by October 13th, 2014.

Dr. Parrish, a former successful publishing executive, left the field of publishing as a result of what she says was a calling to become a pastor.  She attended Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York while she continued working as a publishing executive. Although she loved her work in publishing, her theological studies as well as her work in the areas of advocacy and social justice took over her life. The event being held on October 17th will give those in attendance an opportunity to get the answers they are seeking that pertain to ministry, and the chance to visit with seminary representatives and to learn how to get a job in ministry, as well.

Now holding 15 years of progressively successful experience, Dr. Parrish, who has been lauded as a pastor, preacher and activist scholar, strives to develop people, churches and institutions for the wellness and promotion of justice and peace. She has become a movement builder, visionary pastor and organizational leader with experience serving as head of nonprofit initiatives, a pastor in both urban and rural settings, and a theologian and adjunct professor. Skilled in ecclesial, organizational and human growth and development, Dr. Parrish is an excellent strategic planner, organizer, mediator and collaborator who encourages and nurtures the leadership qualities in others. Her experience and expertise includes overseeing the fiscal, operational, organizational and programmatic aspects of churches and nonprofits, as well as serving as mediator and counselor to groups and individuals.

Ordained with American Baptist Churches-USA, Dr. Parrish holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from New York University (cum laude), a Master of Social Work from Columbia University (summa cum laude), and a Master of Philosophy, Master of Divinity, and Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Union Theological Seminary. She attributes her successful career to the grace of God and having faith, as well as her tenacity and the support of family.
